Yay, I hope to be able to go through all these pictures someday soon!

Question: Does anyone know about the "quality" of DLR ingredients? For example, Pink slime in the beef? Does any restaurant serve organic/sustanable food?
We not only have food allergies to deal with but we also try to eat as "clean" as possible(no food colorings, hydrogenated fats, crazy chemicals and factory farm animals). On vacation I usually do vegetarian if I can't find something within our diet but hoping somebody can chime in for me and tell me about an awesome biodynamic farmed organic sustainable restaurant in the middle of Disney!LOL

Napa Rose would probably meet your needs.

In addition, I believe California passed a law several years ago that bans the use of hydrogenated fats in restaurants and food retailers.

Napa rose has a few dishes with some local or organic ingredients, but the rest of the DLR is typical restaurant food. We eat this same way at home, but we usually can't find many restaurants on vacation that do this ...we can't find many restaurants at home that offer this either, so we don't eat out much!

Hmm...I think Napa rose might be too nice to take my screamer of a 1 year old to. We are so blessed we actually live in Napa so there are TONS of restaurants here that serve food with a conscious.
I think my major need is to find a treat that DD can have. I absolutely do not let her have food dye(bad reactions), but everything else is bendable during treat time.However, she's allergic to nuts/peanuts so most chocolate/bakeries are out.

I would start a brand new thread with this question. I'm not sure everyone looks in here, or just those of us who like to look at food porn. Secondly I would give Disney a call. I've heard they are great with allergies and I would assume they would be able to help more

Here is the Blue Bayou surf and turf. Filet Mignon and lobster tail Delicious of course.




And here is the usual celebration desert at Blue Bayou, the chocolate mousse.

Thanks She's my niece, but I consider her my daughter. She's been my Disneyland partner the past two years.

Breakfast wrap at Tangaroa Terrace- Yum! Decent price for a good filling breakfast.



Spaghetti at Plaza Inn-



Cobb Salad at Plaza Inn-



Chocolate Cake at Plaza Inn-



Strawberry Shortcake at Plaza Inn-



The desserts were enormous. I wish I had placed something by it so you could tell the size. The shortcake was larger than a softball. We should have either split dinner and shared a dessert or split dinner and eaten our own HUGE desserts! The Shortcake was wonderful. We were both sad that we didn't finish the desserts The dinner was just average, nothing special. There was some gold glitter on my DH's chocolate cake as you can see a little in the photo, it was weird! I imagine little kids like that though.

The breakfast platter at TT looks tasty! I tried that chocolate cake dessert at Plaza Inn on our Jan. trip. I had it packaged to take back to the hotel. Imagine my surprise when biting into it and finding the gold flakes! They were kinda crunchy and I must say ..yummy! I will be purchasing that again. And yes...you will want to share it...way too big for one person! The strawberry shortcake looks delish as well!
